Soon, the Electric GT (EGT) Championship, the world's first 100% zero-emissions GT championship, will begin! Starring the well talked-about electric racer that's based on Tesla S P100DL, viewers are excpected to see it reach 100 kph in 2.1 seconds, making it three-tenths quicker than the production version.

Making the P100DL 2.0 e-racer so quick is the impressive 778 bhp (585 kW) electric motor, producing fierce torque of 995 Nm. To successfully tackle those numbers, Pirelli's designed the special P Zero slick and wet tyres.

To make better use of the electric motor while accelerating (compared to production model), the e-racing model shed 500 kilograms. On top of that it also increased downforce, enabled by the front splitter and rear-wing. To ensure better grip with the surface and further improve cornering speeds, they added double steel wishbone pushrod operated suspension and dual circuit.

The 100 kWh Lithium-ion battery is currently the largest one in motorsport, so at racing speeds the car can drive for around 90 km on a single charge.

EGT Tesla P100DL 2.0 is still in development stages, hence it will still be thoroughly tested and improved before the championship begins.
